Parakeet Toys

Parakeets love toys, and will spend hours playing with the objects and cage add-ons described in this section of the Omlet Parakeet Guide. Toys add fun and mental stimulation to your pet bird's life.

Pet parakeets love to play

Toys can be things to chew, things to eat, things to attach to the cage bars, or accessories such as table tennis balls and homemade toys. Some of them can be kept in the cage permanently - such as bells and swings - and the others can be added for a few days and then replaced with something else, to keep up the mental stimulation. Make sure the toys don't block the parakeets' flying space - an issue that applies particularly to small cages.

Hi, I have 2 budgies. As re the above. And you asking about them being let out, well I have tried to get mine out and about but they won’t have it, I have trouble with them anyway, what with them biting the bars if their cage... so I don’t know what to do about it...

I understand where you’re coming from but it is cruel to keep them in a cage without letting them out. Birds are not me at for confinement, regardless what breed they are. They need to stretch their wings, fly around the room, get used to the environment outside of the cage to thrive. Even if you let them out for a little bit before going to work or school in the morning, they will probably make a few rounds around the place and go back to their cage once they are done. You can let them out again once your home and it is safe. Another concern is if they are confined to the cage they will want to fly around inside. That can result in serious injury because there is not sufficient space for them to really let it all out, they will fly into the walls, toys and fall on the floor. If they get scared inside the cage they are going to panic and try to flee, but there will be no way out. Just be mindful to only let them out if you or someone comfortable with birds is at home.

My very clever, talking budgie plays all day on the floor - I don't mean the floor of his cage - I mean my carpet. Do you have any toys that will just stand on the floor? He has normal toys such as balls, toilet rolls, a drum, jigsaw and wheels to name but a few but I would like more variety for him. I get sick of playing football with him.

Hi I was hoping you could give me some advice on a Budgie that was given to me. Is it cruel to keep them in a cage without ever letting them out to exercise their wings and body? Thanks Charles
